Boys Varsity Hockey · Eagle Hockey Coach TJ Murray Wins the Morning Journal Coach of the Year


North Olmsted High School head hockey coach TJ Murray was awarded The Morning Journal Coach of the Year for high school hockey. Murray led the Eagles to a Red South Division championship with a 15-12-3 overall record. It wasn’t the easiest of seasons for Murray and the Eagles, a talented group but only 13 members on the squad in November, seeing that number reduced to 9-10 by January due to injuries and other commitments.

While Murray will give all the credit to his players, you cannot disregard the in-game management from the fourth-year coach knowing the minimal number of players available and how to bring the best out of his players.

The team had to overcome a lot throughout the season, and the Eagles did just that, winning the Red South Division, being a Baron Cup Finalist, a plus-23 goal differential in league play, and multiple players earning All-Star accolades. Congrats to Coach Murray and the Eagles!
